  • NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A 14-year-old boy is hospitalized in critical condition after being shot in the head early Friday.

    New Orleans Police say the shooting happened just after 2 a.m. on Thursday.

    Investigators say 33-year-old Merritt Landry fired one shot at the teenager, who was in Landry’s front yard near his vehicle. Police say the bullet struck the teen in the head.

    Police booked Landry with one-count of attempted second-degree murder. It was not immediately known whether Landry has an attorney.

    A city spokesperson told WDSU-TV that Landry is a New Orleans city employee, who works as a building inspector with the Historic District Landmark Commission.
